    Hi ladies
    I have been lurking for a while lol.
    So I was due to start sw next week...just found out I'm expecting my 3rd child. I just had a baby 15wks ago!!! :eek: lol

    I am 4stone overweight and really want this weight off! I have never really gained weight in pregnancy, despite eating total junk.
    Just wondering if I could actually lose weight whilst pregnant with sw?

    Thanks hunnies xoxo

    Sorry hun, that was a really brief and unhelpful post! What I meant to say was, a lot of people follow SW while they are pregnant and I think many people do lose some weight but obviously not a lot as you have the bump growing at the same time! Your SWC will be able to advise you properly about this. Welcome to the forum x

    Hi

    Congratulations on your pregnancy!

    I always thought/heard that actively trying to lose weight whilst pregnant wasn't to be done however Slimming World isn't really a diet... more a healthy eating plan.

    If you have a bad relationship with food (i.e. eat 'junk' all the time) then maybe SW can help you change this before the baby comes along but still provide you with all the nutrients you and the baby need.

    Have you spoken to your GP or midwife about wanting to lose weight whilst pregnant?

    Why are you dreading seeing doc? Stuff what anyone else thinks! Your pregnant with a baby that is wanted! My friend has a 5 year old (just) - twin 16mth olds and 5mths pregnant (was twins but lost one at 7wks)

    I find the age gap hard lol. There is 2yr 3 mths between first 2 and then 15mths between mid and youngest. The eldest is full-time school and mostly the days are ok. It is feed and bath time i struggle. Plus i just left ft job after maternity and am only working part time now (childcare is too expensive for 3. Ok for 1 - not too bad for 2 - impossible for 3!) also my partner works 8-8 every day so pretty much on my own. Just try not to plan too much in a day and enjoy it. When they all play together and sleep in bed together it is lovely. Would like a fourth actually - but want my figure back more at the moment lol

    Where in London are you! I am Enfield gal but living in Cheshunt :)

    I'm glad you asked this question cos I've been wondering the same. I'm trying to get to my goal weight by October (got 2 stones to go) and then we want to try for a baby, but I will still have some weight still left to lose which I would love to give it a go.

    Like others have said, I can't see why not really, we're not denying our bodies food (which is what essentially is what a diet does) if anything we're eating better!!! Which is good for the baby, better nutrients, more veg, more fruit, lean meat....it's all good.

    Btw....congratulations:flowers:
